  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
The devastating rage virus that infected the citizens of the British Isles has passed. The reconstruction process is underway with the first wave of refugees returning to England. 28 Weeks Later the virus resurfaces and strikes back with a vengeance, jeopardizing the re-population of the nation. (Stacey Pendry)

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD shows very good resolution, and the relatively high average bit rate makes many of the scenes look detailed and clean, but there are still scenes that are hampered by excessive compression artifacts. Color balance and contrast are both balanced nicely, but fleshtones can have a slightly-too-red hue. While edge enhancement is not overly obtrusive, some scenes, especially night shots, are overly noisy. (Danny Richelieu)
